Plum and Gold

This is my first ever card made specifically for a challenge, in this case the Graphicus Monthly Challenge. The colour scheme for January is Plum and Gold. I made the background with alcohol inks and Krylon gold pen, then stamped and embossed the fern leaf from the Elusive Images "Wild Meadow" plate. The same stamp was used on the edges of the card. The text was made with a label maker.

I really enjoyed making this card for the challenge, & look forward now to next month's!

Thanks very much Sue & Sally for your valued comments. I like alcohol inks because it's always a surprise as to how they will turn out. This one just happened to come out right for the fern stamp.
